How do I change tab opening order?

  • Hi, I'm using Opera 24 on a Nexus 7 2013.

    My one big gripe is the order in which Opera opens secondary tabs.

    In almost every other browser I've used it goes {a}(1)(2)(3)

    In Opera it is {a}(3)(2)(1) and then when you close tab (3) it doesn't go to tab (2) as expected but back to {a}

    Is there any way to switch to the first tab method outlined above in Opera for Android, or can this be considered for a future update?

  • Hi,

    Sorry if my first post came across as too critical. I should say it's my only problem with an otherwise superb browser.

    If there's no way to change this setting, I wonder if anyone can inform me why Opera does it this way?

    Thanks, Paul

  • Afaik Opera opens links next to the active page. And new tabs on the most right of all opened pages.

    And it makes sense.
